Now that the dualie was resting on the concrete and performing with less engine restriction, Jamey and Don, of Innovative Customs, began working on the cosmetic metal fabrication portion of build. Custom sheetmetal bed walls, wheel tubs, and a relocated gas filler round out the rear modifications, while the front fenders were boxed in and tubbed to make room for the truck's larger rolling stock. New Era Bedliner of Houma, Louisiana, sprayed the bottom of the hood, the inside of the front fenders and bedsides, as well as inside of the bed box for aesthetic and protective purposes. A Chevy HHR roof rack has been planted to the top of the cab and chrome door handles with color-matched bezels make for attractive exterior accessories. Don blasted the dualie's metal surface with vibrant PPG Victory Red paint, which is truly a winning selection for any low down, heavy-duty hauler.
The atmosphere inside the Chevy's cab is also just as exciting as the outside, as the entire dash, center console, and door panels have been painted to match the lively exterior color. 'Bag switches and Dakota Digital gauges have been mounted to the front of the center console for a quick and easy glance at the air ride's psi levels. Justin McCary was brought in to wire up the custom sound system, which features a Pioneer touch screen receiver, a Rockford Fosgate 10-inch sub and drop-in replacement front and rear door speakers, and an RF P400-4 four channel amp for a much needed audio boost. The driver and passenger seats have both been upgraded with rear mounted 7-inch Visonik monitors, increasing the entertainment value for those lucky enough to catch a ride.
As anyone can clearly see, Casey was right on the money for building a dual-purpose custom that fulfills both show truck and daily driver requirements. Casey would first like to thank his mom for the support and to those who played a role in creating his decked out dualie, especially Innovative Customs.
